The Pacific Northwest Barbecue Association is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion and enjoyment of barbecue in the Northwest. The PNWBA is committed to educating the public in the furtherance and development of authentic barbecue knowledge through cooking classes, judging classes, and competition barbecue cooking events. The organization is managed by a Board of Directors who are made up completely with volunteers.
Barbecue and grilling are often confused for the same thing because they both involve cooking meat and flames. Old school BBQ is defined as letting a large cut of meat or ribs cook indirectly in a closed pit. The low heat and smoke of a charcoal and or wood fire is ideal for creating the just right temperature and circumstances for a perfectly barbecued piece of meat. The ideal temperature is between 225-250 degrees; for a low and slow cooking process that breaks down the connective tissues of the meat and turns tough cuts into the most delicious tender food on earth. Learn more about competition BBQ from the PNWBA.
This second annual event is bringing the delicious BBQ style of cooking to Central Oregon.
Cooking over the fire adds distinct flavor and makes it the perfect activity to share food and fun during the heat of the summer.
Calling all BBQ food trucks, carts and booths! Apply today to join us at the 2022 Central Oregon BBQ, Brews and Whiskey Festival.
